This inn was booked for us by the tour company. When we first arrived, I was disappointed that the hotel is not right in the downtown area. It is only a five minute bike ride, but I was expecting to be right in the town. From the outside, the hotel seems a bit outdated and run down. The hall to the rooms also did not look nice at all, and I was not pleased when we first checked in.
I do have the say the room was actually nice, with comfortable beds, and great wifi access in the rooms. The dinner was excellent, with very good service, and so was the breakfast. We ate some kind of fresh bread with pumpkin seeds that was my favorite bread on the trip.
By the time we left, this place had won me over and I have to give it a good review. Also, I should say that some places we stayed right in the center of town ended up being noisy, and difficult to sleep, while the Tulip Inn was quiet and pleasant to sleep.
Franeker in general is not a super lively town, and if you are looking for a little more happening place, I might advise to stay in Harlingen instead (though I didn't actually stay there to know if its better - it did seem like it). The Planetarium in Franeker is definitely worth seeing.
